Review-A-Go-Go

Thursday night, we went to see legitimate theater downtown. We saw Moon for the Misbegotten which I discovered was the last play written by Eugene O'Neill. Our seats were great. We could actually see the expressions on the actors' faces. The play itself was pretty good and fairly engrossing. I would recommend it for those readers who want a little culture.

Friday afternoon, we went to the mall and I bought A Bigger Bang which is the new album from the Rolling Stones. Such a great album. The overall feel of the album to me is that the Stones have matured to their age but still remember how to rock. One song Jagger complains she drives too fast and in another complains he's eating breakfast at 9 and she's just getting in. It's quite amusing. As many may already know, the song "Sweet Neocon" basically rips the current administration a new one. Gotta love it.

Friday night, we went to the movie theater to see Memoirs of a Geisha. I went because what male wouldn't want to go see a movie about Asian sex slaves but I really became quite engrossed in the story. I will reveal that the ending is rather sad when you think about it but I serious doubt anyone actually does anymore so you're probably safe. My parents jumped on the bandwagon on people complaining most of the actors weren't really Japanese but my feeling is that kind of thing has be going on forever so why complain now especially when they are at least really Asian.

Once again, is there more than one quiz result for this?








Inconsistent
You scored 68 Giving, 68 Respectful, and 22 Selfish!
You have a lot of potential, but you give to get. You expect, and your expectations are rarely met, if ever. Trouble is, no one will ever meet your expectations. YOU can't even meet your expectations. You are all over the board. You need consistency! You also need a time out once in a while. How about relaxing for a minute? Soak in the sun. Give a little TLC to yourself, so you can give it-unselfishly-to others. You'll be surprised at your true joy, rather then your disappointment!!!

When Captain America Throws His Mighty Shield...

As I was recently discussing with someone on Twitter, I'm not a big fan of "Good Guys Manipulated Fight Each Other" films so it's sad that Captain America: Civil War came out so close on the heels of Batman v. Superman. As maybe I've confessed before I am more of a Marvel fan but that is not why this one was better.  DC fans frequently point out this was the 13th Marvel film while BvS  is only the second of their new cinematic universe. To me, that's why it worked better. The tension was building out of the last Avengers  movie and the characters have interacted for several movies worth of time (One must assume interactions happen off screen as well) so they know each other pretty well. Two friends having a disagreement carries so much more weight than two strangers going at it. 

In my critique of  Batman v. Superman,  I noted that the end of the featured fight hinged on the fact both characters' mothers were named Martha. Here, the big fight ended when …

Strange Times

No, this isn't about the election. I'm not ready to unlease that upon the world just yet.  Instead, allow me to share my thoughts on another fantastic entry into Marvel's cinematic universe.  Doctor Strange was the perfect blend of the tone we are used to and the adding of the supernatural world.

Friends on Facebook may have noticed my comment that the first part of  The Imitation Game  was unexpectedly hilarious due in large part to Benedict Cumberbatch's turn as Alan Turing so it comes as no surprise he's awesome as arrogant neurosurgeon (a redundant phrase in my personal experience.)

Doctor Strange, like Ghost Rider, is really not a character that lends itself to having a love interest but since it's an origin story, it worked here with  fellow surgeon Dr. Christine Palmer. Certainly better than in that movie... I've loved Rachel McAdams since The Family Stone  but I'm sure the character'll just go the route of Thor's Jane Foster and just be …

An X-Cellent Post

 X-Men: Apocalypse is the third of the "prequel movies" and today is my second favorite after First Class.  Don't get me wrong: the last one,  Days of Future Past,was far from terrible but you could easily argue it was an excuse to feature Hugh Jackman. The other two do just fine with cameos (which are both awesome and unnecessary but I digress...)

The two biggest complaints I've had about the franchise are the lack of even internal continuity and lack of effort. This movie clearly had the attitude they know continuity is messed up and they don't give a shit. Havok and Cyclops are brothers but inexplicably 20 years apart in age but certainly don't look it. In '83, Prof. Xavier sees CIA Moira McTaggart for the first time since the Cuban Missile Crisis and comments, "You haven't aged a day!" Not even James Bond is a field agent in his late '50's but whatever... (Speaking of Moira,  Rose Byrne is Tasmanian while the character is Scottis…
